DIRECTIONS

  • Boil 10 pint canning jars for 15 minutes. Leave in hot water until ready for use.
  • Wash okra with a vegetable brush. Leave short stem. If you prick each pod several times with a needle or fine-pointed knife, pickling solution will enter pod more quickly. This may help prevent floating.
  • Put pods in hot jars with stems alternating up and down for a better pack. Place one pepper and one clove of garlic in each jar. Add 1 teaspoon dill seed, if desired. Heat vinegar, salt and water to boiling. Pour into each jar, covering okra.
  • Remove air bubbles, wipe sealing edge and close with new jar lids following manufacturer's directions.
  • Process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes at a simmering temperature (180 degrees). Immediately remove from water, cool. Store for a month before using to develop flavor.
